‘Polar exploration is at once the cleanest and most isolated way of having a bad time which has been devised.’ Thankfully, our Polar specialists will assure you that times have changed since Apsley Cherry-Garrard made The Worst Journey in the World — though there’s no doubt that Antarctica’s attraction is as a truly intrepid, once-in-a-lifetime travel experience.
Our specialists will talk you through the various expedition vessels we work with to help you select the right one for you, depending on how active you wish to be. They’ll explain what to expect once you arrive at the South Shetland Islands and Antarctic Peninsula, and how the ice dictates where exactly you’ll visit. Places to go in Antarctica also includes (Subantarctic) South Georgia, where you can observe king penguins and visit Shackleton’s grave.
